Christmas cats

I am travelling.

This is a photo of The Mighty Fang and Mencken shortly after I brought TMF home from the Humane Society shelter. This is as close to a baby picture as I have of the two kitties, Mencken was already fully grown (and already saying "bah humbug!" to everything except tummy rubs) when I brought him home from the shelter, and TMF was a teenager. Mencken got his job in my household based on tummy rubs. TMF got his job in my household based on being sleek and shiny and black and friendly. At least, I think that's how it went. I distinctly seem to remember that they chose me, rather than vice-versa, but I'm not quite sure how that worked.
